JR continues his hardest to get back with Marissa. Unhappy over her friendship with Scott, JR tries to throw his cousin under the bus over his living with Madison but Marissa says she already knows.

Griffin shows up at Kendall’s and says he couldn’t leave.

Jake’s a bit rattled when he finds out that Cara and Tad were in bed together. When Cara hears the hospital board wants to talk to both her and Jake she decides not to let him take the blame or put the Martin brothers in any more trouble so she resigns.

Seeing how upset he is over Erica’s disappearance, Krystal offers to spend some time with Jack in the hopes she can distract him. Erica tries to grab hold of the disembodied voice but is unsuccessful. When her captor serves her something to eat she recognizes it’s from Krystal’s but when she asks if the person is Krystal she gets no response. Marissa agrees to the double date for Bianca’s sake, believing her friend needs the distraction. After lunch JR’s called away on business leaving the girls to hang out. Alone for a moment with Bianca, Louise points out that maybe the date was a mistake because it’s clear she has feelings for someone else. Affected by her feelings for Marissa, Bianca decides to back out of going to the play. Upon Asher’s questioning, Caleb says nothing happened between him and Erica and he shuts down. He later apologizes to Asher for not opening up and Asher admits he wants to help his father out. Maya admits to Colby that she’s a big fan of her and her vlogs but remains vague with information about herself. Caleb wants to give Colby equipment for her vlogs which would support Corlandt Electronics but Asher isn’t so sure it’s a good idea to go over to the Chandler mansion. Caleb winds up getting into an argument with JR when he comes home and Asher gets in the middle and defends his father. He won’t remove the equipment because it’s Colby’s decision.

After misinterpreting a close moment with Jackson, Krystal is embarrassed and leaves. Krystal tries to quit working for Jackson but he tells her she’s not going anywhere. After seeing an old interview with Erica discussing her many marriages, Jackson becomes frustrated. Bianca encourages Jackson to keep an open mind since he doesn’t know the full story yet. Kendall tells Cara and Tad that Griffin has gone off to Afghanistan with renegade doctors and asked her to deliver the message. Cara’s hit with the feeling that for a moment she finally had family again but now that Griffin’s gone it’s lost. Kathy and Jenny approach Cara and tell her that she hasn’t lost her family. The outpouring of love from Tad and the girls brings a tear to her eye. Kendall fills Bianca in on all that’s going on and Bianca wants to help her nail Ricky. Griffin teaches Kendall how to defend herself and in doing so they wind up exceptionally close. The moment’s broken when Kendall gets a call from Ricky asking to see her right now. Erica succeeds in breaking through the initial door but finds herself face to face with a brick wall. She decides to hide her food and make it appear that she’s not eating. When the captor comes back he/she has a scrapbook of Erica’s life and wants to go through it together but Erica isn’t interested. Erica’s convinced the captor is Krystal but the captor claims Erica doesn’t know her at all.

Although Krystal initially thinks distance between her and Jackson is best, they work well together and she decides she’s not going to leave. Erica finally gets the captor to email her family and let them know she’s ok and briefly talks about Kendall and Bianca. Bianca approaches Jackson with the suggestion of making a video to Erica. Meanwhile, Erica looks longingly at a photo of Jack in the scrapbook. Caleb rebuffs Asher’s suggestion of recording a video for Erica, afraid that it could go viral. Asher makes the mistake of telling Caleb that he hacked into Kendall and Bianca’s email accounts and found that Erica had sent them an email. Angry at his son, Caleb goes straight to Bianca and apologizes but Bianca seems to get an idea off of what Caleb’s told her. Caleb apologizes to Asher for yelling at him and offers him a side gig. Kendall continues to play Ricky. She “confesses” that she and Zach fell out of love and it was tough for all those offering condolences for a perfect love that wasn’t really true. He acts surprised (even though he’s not thanks to Bianca planting the idea in his head earlier) and consoles her. While keeping an eye on Kendall and Ricky, Griffin almost gets caught when he steps on a twig; and Kendall distracts Ricky so Griffin can escape. Kendall lays in to Griffin for almost getting himself caught but he’s upset that she kissed Ricky despite her claim that it was all part of the act.

THIS IS US Fall Finale: Deteriorating Health, A Pregnancy, A Fall-Out

On Tuesday’s night’s pivotal fall finale of This Is Us, and their annual Thanksgiving episode, the series left us with more questions and concerns for the beloved Pearson family.  This Is Us will return in January; till then we are left to ponder what we saw.

First, is what has happened to Rebecca.  From all accounts she is dealing with some form of Alzheimer’s or dementia, but it is yet to be clarified, because as we end last night’s episode, Rebecca realizes she needs to see a doctor and tells her worried son, Randall (who has been on to mom’s condition) that she got all twisted up trying to remember the movie she wanted to see while she was watching the previews.  Nine months later in the flash-forward on her way to the cabin for Kevin’s 40th birthday, she winds up in a cop car being taken there, because she got lost.

Dan Fogelman the series creator told Entertainment Weekly: “So much of this show is about memory and about looking back. So the idea that one of our characters would be faced with this incredibly scary illness where you begin to lose that and that begins to fade away felt very in keeping with the themes of the show.”

We also learn that Kevin and Randall, who were looking like the best of brothers on Turkey day, had some sort of falling out by the time we got to the fast-forward. There, we learn that Kevin is not speaking to him anymore.  Viewers are left to question what caused the friction in their relationship.

In addition at Thanksgiving, Kevin says he wants to have a family by the time he is 40.  So flash-forward, Kevin reveals that he has a pregnant fiancée.  Who’s the baby mama? It would seem Cassidy is the obvious choice, but could it be a red herring and its another woman who re-entered or entered Kevin’s life?

Kate and Toby;s marriage continues to crack, and at Thanksgiving, Kate grabs Toby’s phone to take a photo but sees a text message from someone in his crossfit group who seems to be woman, which says “Don’t let her bring you down. Here for you.”   Could Kate be misinterpreting the message?

Deja’s mom is doing well, and that could cause trouble for the Pearsons, and down the line for Beth. Will Shauna try to get her daughter back, or can everyone co-exist?

DWTS Heartbreak: James Van Der Beek Eliminated Following Reveal Of His Wife’s Miscarriage

It was the most emotional semi-finals in the history of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.  Five couples were in the running and by the end of the two-hour broadcast on Monday night, one would be eliminated.

But no one expected it to go the way it did in a shocking and heartbreaking turn of events.  Considered by many the top frontrunner to take the Mirror Ball Trophy, former Dawson’s Creek star, James Van Der Beek, announced in tears during the broadcast that his wife, Kimberly who was pregnancy with their sixth child, miscarried over the weekend.

But things got even more painful from there.  In an attempt to make the finals next week each duo had to perform a “redemption dance” chosen by the judges as the worst dance from their season, followed by a new routine.

Van Der Beek and his pro partner, Emma Slater performed a Cha-Cha which did not go over well with the judges, causing them by the end of the night to be the lowest scoring couple on the leaderboard.  But it was before his second dance that Van Der Beek shared the news of his his wife’s miscarriage.  He then danced an emotional tango in her honor.

Across the board the judges chose Ally and Sasha.  What followed was pure shock in the audience.  Then, Ally Brooke broke town in tears pleasing for the judges and the producers to give her spot to Van Der Beek in the finals

“Can I give it to James, please?” Brooke expressed through her tears.  Van Der Beek would not allow her to do that and the show went off the air with co-host Erin Andrews, judge Carrie Ann Inaba and the viewers in America, in sadness.

Van Der Beek took to his Twitter account to thank those who supported him and his family during their difficult time following the loss of their unborn child: “Wrecked. Devastated. In shock. That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life. There are no words… thank you everyone for the love & support. It’s exactly what we need.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Needs Fatherly Advice From Tony As Ryan Carnes and Brad Maule Deliver Tender Scenes

Friday’s highly-touted episode of ABC;s General Hospital featured the return of Brad Maule in the role of Dr. Tony Jones, the adoptive father of Lucas(Ryan Carnes) and former husband to Bobbie (Jackie Zeman).

It has been years since fan favorite Maule graced the GH screens, but the writers found a way to conjure him up in Lucas’ mind as Lucas is in a pivotal moment in his life; his bio-dad Julian Jerome (William deVry) is blackmailing his husband, Brad (Parry Shen), and Brad is keeping secrets from Lucas.  All spell bad news to Lucas for raising his son, Wiley.  But as GH fans know, Wiley is not the baby that Lucas thinks he is raising with Brad- he is actually raising Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) child, which Brad knows!

So, needing some clarity and visiting his adoptive dad’s gravesite, Lucas sees the vision of Tony, and the former father and son have a heart to heart.  Tony tells Lucas how raising him as  little boy gave him the strength and courage to go on through the hard times, and how to be their for his little boy.  Lucas is just emotionally overwrought and so burdened by the lies those who say that they supposedly love him have been telling.

At the same time, Julian is searching for Lucas, and happens upon Bobbie at the hospital. She really does not like Julian and the two land at the GH hospital wall where plaques of the beloved doctors and nurses who have passed away are seen.  Bobbie knows Julian could never be the kind of father, Tony was to Lucas.  Julian says he can never replace Tony, but he is Lucas’ father and wants to somehow do right by him.

Later alone, Bobbie talks to Tony’s photo and we see a heartfelt moment where Tony touches Bobbie’s hand and touches her on the cheek. Something Bobbie feels as she remembers this once great love of hers. At the end of the episode Julian finds Lucas at Tony’s gravesite. What will their confrontation bring?

Kudos to Ryan Carnes, who was the emotional heart of this episode and who made us feel every moment of Lucas’s anguish. And … how wonderful to see Brad Maule again!

So, what did you think of Tony’s visit to Lucas and Bobbie on Friday’s GH? Comment below. But first watch some key scenes between them.
